Types of Planned Gifts to Harmony At Home

Planned gifts can take many forms. Some are relatively simple, and others require professional assistance to set up.

Bequest

A bequest is a gift made through a will or a trust. It is the most popular planned gift. It is the easiest to make, and it costs nothing during the donor’s lifetime. A bequest is usually a set dollar amount or percentage of an estate that goes to Harmony At Home after the donor’s death.

IRA or 401(k) Beneficiary

A donor can designate Harmony At Home as the beneficiary of all or a portion of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or a retirement plan, such as a 401(k). Upon the donor’s death, Harmony At Home receives all or the percentage of the proceeds designated.

Insurance Beneficiary

A donor can designate Harmony At Home as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy.

Lifetime Charitable IRA Rollover

(also referred to as a “Qualified Charitable Distribution” or QCD). A donor age 70/2 or older can make tax-free gifts from the donor’s Individual Retirement Account of up to $100,000 per year, which can count toward any required IRA distribution.

Charitable Remainder Trust (“CRT”)

With this irrevocable trust, the donor retains an income stream, obtains a current income tax deduction, and the balance in the trust passes to Harmony At Home upon the donor’s death. Favorable for donors with low basis appreciated assets.

Charitable Gift Annuity (“CGA”)

The donor retains a guaranteed income stream for life, obtains a current income tax deduction, and the balance passes to Harmony At Home upon the donor’s death (or upon the death of a spouse or other individual).

Gift of Remainder Interest in a Residence or Farm

The donor signs a real property deed for a residence, a vacation home, or a farm — to Harmony At Home, but retains the right to use (including the right to rent out) or live in the property for the donor’s lifetime (or a stated number of years).

Bargain Sale

The donor sells property to Harmony At Home for an amount less than the property’s fair market value. The donor receives a charitable income tax deduction equal to the difference between the fair market value and the sales price.

Charitable Lead Trust (“CLT”)

A Charitable Lead Trust is the reverse of a Charitable Remainder Trust. After a donor makes the gift to the Charitable Trust, the CLT makes the monetary payout to Harmony At Home for a term of years, or for the donor’s lifetime. After that, the assets remaining in the CLT pass back to the donor or to designated non-charitable beneficiaries (e.g., children or grandchildren).

  • Planned giving is the process of making a significant charitable gift during a donor‘s lifetime or at death, that is part of his or her overall financial or estate planning. It is also called legacy giving
  • Planned giving enables charitablyminded people to make larger gifts to nonprofits than most folks could make from just their annual ordinary income
  • Some planned gifts provide lifelong income to donors. Other gift plans use estate and tax planning to provide for the nonprofit and heirs in ways that maximize the size of the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donors estate.
  • A planned gift can include gifts of investments, real estate, personal property, retirement plans and life insurance benefits, or cash.
